The Song: 'Heroes' (original version by David Bowie)
The Contestants: TV on the Radio vs. the Wallflowers
In This Corner -- TV on the Radio: These eclectic Brooklyn scenesters have being indulging in a love affair with Mr. Bowie for some time now -- he lent his vocals to TVOTR's 2006 offering 'Return to Cookie Mountain.' Check out their bass-eous and atmospheric electro-pop take on the Thin White Duke's 1977 classic.

In This Corner -- the Wallflowers: Jakob ("Son of a Bob") Dylan's band is probably accustomed to having big shoes to fill and, as such, seem at ease with their interpretation of this Bowie/Eno masterpiece. This straight-up rock rendering found its way onto the 'Godzilla' soundtrack (yikes!), but in no way should your vote be colored by that, People of the Clash -- vote with your ears!
